Kids

A video-game bad guy (voiced by John C. Reilly) decides to go good in Disney’s computer-animated "Wreck-It Ralph" (Nov. 2). "Rise of the Guardians" (Nov. 21) looks like "The Avengers" for the fairy-tale set — with Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Jack Frost and the Tooth Fairy joining forces against an evil spirit.

A boy brings his dog back to life in Tim Burton’s animated "Frankenweenie" (Oct. 5). In the animated "Hotel Transylvania" (Sept. 28), directed by "Dexter’s Laboratory" creator Genndy Tartakovsky, Count Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) runs a resort for his fellow ghouls and tries to keep a wayward human (voiced by Andy Samberg) from dating his teen daughter (voiced by Selena Gomez).

Also for Halloween, Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice must find her little brother in trick-or-treat madness in the comedy "Fun Size" (Oct. 26).

Pixar goes 3-D on two re-releases this season: venturing under the sea with "Finding Nemo" (Sept. 14) and scaring up the power in "Monsters, Inc." (Dec. 19). And Cirque Du Soleil takes to the third dimension in "Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D" (Dec. 21).

Documentary

"How to Survive a Plague" (Oct. 19), a powerful movie from Sundance, uses amazing found footage to trace the early years of the AIDS crisis and how gay groups mobilized to fight it.

"West of Memphis" (to be determined) is a deep look at the case of the West Memphis Three, teens convicted of the horrific murders of little boys in Arkansas.

"The Imposter" (Sept. 21) is a Texas tall, but true, tale about a young Frenchman who convinces a family that he’s their missing teen son. "Searching for Sugar Man" (Oct. 5) deals with another missing person: Rodriguez, a ’70s rock star who fell off the musical landscape in the States but became an icon in South Africa.
